Latest Ratings

How to $lurp

Rate any hashtag or link with a $lurp rating from 1 to 5 stars, i.e. $+ to $+++++

You can also use special rating keywords, such as $like or $dislike

Rating will apply to all tags or links in your post.

Games can be rated multiple times, everything else takes your latest rating as your score.

What's coming

We will chart how much you like a game over time, and represent this with a graph (we are already tracking this with the $lurp ratings)

Mentions - where you will be able to @mention people and find posts where you are mentioned.

Threads - where you will be able to reply to a post thus turning it into a thread.

Follow people. As we're all mates for now, we don't need this just yet.

Easy searching of tags. Again, not needed yet but on the plans.

Publication scores - we're tracking how you rate articles, and your ratings also get applied to the article's website. At some point we'll show how liked/disliked each publication is.

Some other cool things too! ;-)

Can I cheat?

No :p

There's no point in spamming ratings, as you only get one rating per tag (unless it's a game). So only your latest rating to a tag will apply. If you change your mind and want to re-rate something, that's fine, but repeated dislikes (or likes!) won't work as your vote will only count once towards the final.

When it comes to games, you can rate them as often as you want, but only your average rating is submitted to the game's page - so again spamming won't have any effect. Rate games when and as you feel like it, as we will show how you liked a game over time. This is not just great for us seeing what our friends think of games, but handy for developers too - peaks and dips may help them see which bits of their games were liked... and which not so much.

I'm all for traditional type forum tbh

(I'm quite happy to try the new forum tho - particularly as it will get better over time, whereas the old vb forum will never get updated..)

or... should we just go back to the old forum? GameSlurp PS4 Forum, Xbox One .. - it has a custom design, whereas on the new one (like the howtogeek one) we'd probably just put our logo at the top and change a few colours here and there...

Yes. We should switch back to a forum...new or old ;) Didn't realise you'd switched off the registration part of the site, no wonder it's soo quiet around here.

Hi Azz, I wouldn't mind trying something new, I find this one a bit 'jumbled together' so tend to just pop in from time to time rather than really get stuck in. For some reason this current one makes me less likely to post. Cheers Greg

Should we switch GameSlurp to a new forum platform? Hi guys, what do you think about us moving to a new forum platform instead of us using this custom one? I currently have registrations turned off here as I only coded this up for us lot really (there are very little mod controls on here - I can just close accounts at present, hence why I never opened up registrations). I think the slurp aspect, of rating tags and games was cool, but we don't really use it that much (plus there aren't enough of us here for it to count really). So how about we revert to a new forum? I could try to get our old threads (from the vB forum) ported over, or, to make things easier we could just start afresh. The other option is to open up registrations here, but to people we know ourselves - so it stays a private community. The other thing I like about the new platform is that it automatically 'promotes' people based on their activity, so people can work their way up the community, getting permissions to edit titles, close threads etc. The people who made it also made the Stack Overflow site - so they know a thing or two about software design. You can see an example of the platform here: How-To Geek Discussion.. What do you think? Keep GameSlurp as it is (perhaps also open up registrations), or move over to the new platform?

Well it's 3:30am, I have just finished it. I must say its one of if not the best games I've ever played. Was a good challenge, but kept me coming back and back after a bit I was dying at. Not many games get me to do that I generally give up and move on!! Now shall I sleep or play a few rounds of BF4!!!!

Just Got #AbesOddessy #NewandTasty - for the kids of course. It is a blast from the past. I remember playing this ages ago. I loved it then and the new one is great. Lovely graphically and challenging to play. I would give it a $++++ . I downloaded it from PSN. 33NZD and well worth it. Both the kids and I are really enjoying it.

Friends only on Raids in Destiny According to an article on joystiq that raids in destiny won't be accessible until you reach level 20 and there's no match making. Hopefully we can get a gameslurp weekly raid going. In an interview with IGN, Bungie writer Luke Smith says that raids will be six-player missions that open up at level 20; they lack waypoints to tell you where to go and what to do. According to IGN, they're also friends-only, no matchmaking. Smith also promises monsters and situations that "demand of you things you've never even really been asked to do in a shooter before." Think Halo 3: ODST's Firefight mode meets World of Warcraft's Ulduar (or Naxxramas, or Icecrown Citadel, or ). #Destiny

Got it on the PS store so I was waiting for 1 am to tick down to play it, it allowed pre download. So was up till 5am playing it. Played it for about 5 hours so far, really enjoying it. Not easy! Some really challenging bits, well for me as I'm crap at games. Story is good, brill acting and motion capture. Actually a few tugs of the heart strings, which for a game, well anything, is a bit unusual for me! Oh yeah and as well as the cracking game play, engaging story etc it looks gorgeous. Textures, lighting and the atmosphere created by that is brilliant.

Still see the odd bit around. But seems a lot of it comes from the press now, and admissions by companies of "console parity" All daft nonsense to me, I have both of em and enjoy games on both and if you are a fan of video games then you like games not a format they are delivered on. Now pc elitist people irritate me! If you are so concerned with your ultra setting and antialiasing bull then to me you are missing the point.... It's about playing the game not tweaking the in game menu!

@Azz It's set for b/g/n and always been a bit poor the connection here. Quite far from the exchange, when was on normal broadband which was upto 6mb was running under 1mb. Took no end of engineer visits and phone calls to get something done and get a socket thingy to reduce interference. No virgin cable here so the only option is via bt.

Negative fanboyism! Anyone remember that? LOL img.photobucket.com.. It's funny that, even though the PS4 is significantly 'better', PS4 owners don't seem to be trashing the XB1 as what happened with the PS4 and 360 (even tho the PS3 was more powerful!). Funny huh?

@stanokella You must be on their 40Mbps package then Ste? Your wired connection will be a good indicator of your actual speeds - as wireless could be slower depending on several factors. Hold down the alt key and click on the wireless icon in the menu bar at the top - then click on wireless diagnostics, but when it opens go to the menu at the top > window > utilities > wifi scan Under protocol, make sure 'n' is in there, as some routers turn it off, or it gets turned off by their crafty options (like on sky, all their options are for 'g', and the only one that uses 'n' is 'auto'). You can also look at other things like performance as well. If your package is meant to be higher (like 80Mbps) then call them - as they often cap connections!!

I'm on BT infinity, best have got is around 35meg down and 7 up. Generally runs around 25meg down and 6 up. That's woreless according to the speed tester. My XBone seems to think things are rosier at 40meg down with that being wired.

Arcades - Do you remember them? I do! Some of my favourite gaming moments were in the arcades - probably the Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat and Sega Racing Classic days.
